Aeolian's Science Olympiad Team Wins SILVER!!! 2/22/2014

On February 22, 2014, all three elementary schools in the Los Nietos School District competed and won Silver Medals in the 28th annual Los Angeles County Science Olympiad. The competition was held at Occidental College, and teams from Ada S. Nelson, Aeolian, and Rancho Santa Gertrudes competed against 60 elementary schools from across Los Angeles County. Principals Duncan, Speh, and Perez, congratulated the students, staff, and parents who put in many long hours in preparation for the annual science event.

The Science Olympiad is an international, non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. These goals are accomplished through classroom activities, research, training workshops and the encouragement of intramural, district, regional, state and national tournaments. The Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous, academic, interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events, which students prepare for during the year.
Each year there are approximately 23 challenging and motivational events that are drawn from the various disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers and technology. There is a balance between events requiring knowledge of science facts, concepts processes, skills and science applications.

Congratulations to Teams Ada S. Nelson, Aeolian, and Rancho Santa Gertrdues for representing with pride the Los Nietos School District in their Silver medal award.
